READ: Ecclesiastes 3:1-11
“And he shall be like a tree…that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.“ – Psalm 1:3
All of God’s blessings have their season. Church growth has a season. Promotion has a season. Personal prosperity has a season.
A mature Christian knows that the blessings he desires will not come overnight. He is prepared to stay at it until the breakthrough and promotion arrive. If you cannot wait for your God-given promotion, you are not mature. I have had to wait many years for many things.
If you cannot wait for the mangoes on your tree to be ripe, you are never going to enjoy them. You will always pluck them off before they are ripe. Mind you, unripe mangoes are very different from ripe ones.
I know of a pastor who bought a very expensive car. For several months, he had to use the entire income of the church to pay off the debt. This caused ripples in the church.
Funds were raised in a desperate attempt to pay for this expensive car. In the end a blessing turned into a controversy.
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end” (Ecclesiastes 3:1,11).
In His time, God makes all things beautiful. Be prepared to wait for your season.
Start your day with a blessing from the WORD!!!
EXPECT A SERIES OF VICTORIES!
